As a former corporate Marketing Director, FitPros Founder, Lindsay (Bailey) Johnson has over a decade of experience building events and integrated campaigns, with a focus on retention to drive revenue. Similar to many people in the workforce, Lindsay hit a wall in her career. She was burnt-out from the unhealthy long-hours, eating lunch at her desk, then unconsciously snacking throughout the day. She felt a sense of guilt to step away from the office to workout. As a result, she left the comforts of a steady job, and set-out on an unknown journey to find health and happiness.
Lindsay’s personal weight-loss of 45+ pounds ignited her drive to become a nationally certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach in January 2014. Recognizing the importance to connect the body and mind, she traveled to India for a 5-week intensive Yoga Teacher Training. Fascinated by the science of food and exercise to nourish the body, Lindsay strictly trained for 12-weeks with a loss of 11% body-fat and 18 pounds, prior to competing in her first bikini fitness competition in June, 2015.
Following her Mother’s footsteps, Lindsay dreamt of owning a successful business. Little did she know her corporate career and more recent fitness passion would collide. Lindsay was referred by a former colleague to teach yoga at their workplace. Word spread, and Lindsay’s teaching gigs became so plentiful that she had to pass along classes to her teacher friends. Struck by a memory of a hodgepodge pedometer challenge at a past job, Lindsay tied it all together to identify a need and business opportunity for holistic fitness and health in the workplace.
